IAP2 Applying Methods for P2
IAP2’s Applying Methods introduces practitioners to a large number of public engagement methods, working through the selection, design, question development and implementation considerations for how we bring people together in person and online. Learning by doing, practicing, experiencing and leading methods is core to this participatory course that gives participants access to tip sheets and ‘how to’ info for more than 75 methods.
By the end of the course participants will be able to:
● Identify a range of methods which can be used for various P2/engagement purposes and processes, and strategies to select the most appropriate method/s for an P2/engagement project/ process
● Research, design and test a F2F and/or online method using a range of tools and resources.
● Apply the four steps of designing a method incorporating the eight key components of method design:
● Develop rational and experiential aims
● Design an appropriate format
● Design questions and process
● Develop appropriate communications
● Combine methods to achieve P2/engagement goals and objectives and test for appropriate sequencing
● Incorporate inclusion and diversity principles
● Identify data management needs, evaluation points and measures
● Identify resources required
● Explore a variety of both F2F and online methods/techniques that are more structured process and have nested methods within them (E.g., Deliberative processes, Appreciative Inquiry and Open Space Technology)
● Analyze the specific requirements for online and digital methods, identify and select appropriate platforms and tools to meet needs, and strategies to develop these methods for delivery
● Identify principles for monitoring online activity
● Test the design by running elements of the method and submitting to peer review using a checklist
● Apply methods to achieve P2/engagement goals and objectives including using effective communication skills, and test for appropriate sequencing
